Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has submitted detailed project reports for the two proposed Metrolite corridors i.e. Rithala to Narela (21.7km) and Kirti Nagar to Dwarka ECC (Exhibition-cum-Convention Centre) in Sector 25 (19km) — to Delhi government for approval.
Two Proposed Metrolite Corridor
DMRC expects to complete the two projects within three years after getting a nod from the government and the Centre. The Rithala-Narela corridor is expected to come up first. Unlike metro corridors, Metrolite will be a light rail project that will mostly run on the road surface.
However, unlike similar projects in other cities around the world that share road space with other modes of transport, the Rithala-Narela and Kirti Nagar-Dwarka ECC Metrolite corridors will have dedicated corridors that are fenced on both sides. DMRC has gone for dedicated, fenced corridors as sharing road space with other vehicles would have reduced the train’s average speed considerably.
While it was earlier expected that apart from the Rithala-Narela section, two other proposed Phase-IV corridors of Delhi Metro — Lajpat Nagar-Saket G Block (7.9km) and Inderlok-Indraprastha (12.5km) — would also get Metrolite corridors, these have not been found feasible and will have metro services.
